BJP leader appeals WB Hindus to take inspiration from Gujarat riots
New Delhi: Commenting on the prevailing communal tension across West Bengal, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator in Telangana, Raja Singh, on Sunday appealed the Hindus of WB to take inspiration from Gujarat 2002 riots.
"The Hindus of Gujarat had taught a great lesson to the people who were spreading communal tension there in 2002. It is high time when the Hindus of West Bengal should also do the same to ensure their existence in the state," said the BJP MLA while talking to the media persons.
He also appealed secular forces to be a little more vigilant towards West Bengal if they do not want it to turn into Bangladesh.
"Hindus were kicked out of Kashmir. Same will happen to us in Bengal also. I appeal to the secular forces to show a little more concern towards the state if they do not want it to turn into Bangladesh. If we will not unite to protect our existence, we will soon face Kashmir like situation in Bengal," he added.
It may be mentioned that Raja Singh has delivered the controversial remark at the time when there is an atmosphere of communal tension in Baduria and Basirhat districts of the state, following an objectionable video that went viral over social media.
The BJP leader also accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of supporting the people who are spreading violence in the name of religion. Mamata, however, on Saturday ordered a judicial probe into the matter.
